Only 5% of Annandale’s 2015 production is maturing in sherry wood. Sourced directly from José y Miguel Martín SA, Spain and specially selected by Dr Jim Swan, these are very rare authentic sherry butts that previously matured sherry (rather than sherry-conditioned virgin oak casks).
We've selected just one sherry butt of Man O'Sword from our 2015 production. Each bottle of this Single Cask, Single Malt is individually marked with cask and bottle number.
A good balance between peat smoke and fruit flavours. A leather and smoky note slowly gives way to sweet cooked fruits of apple and pear with burnt orange highlights. A creamy vanilla note with toffee and honey develops, with glace lemon and orange peel.
More fruit develops with peat smoke highlights and the long creamy aftertaste.
